Rehabilitators

Here is a list of UK wildlife rehabilitators. You can search by town or city to find the nearest facilities in your area.

The British Wildlife Rehabilitation Council cannot inspect or endorse any wildlife rescue centre or rehabilitator, although organisations and individual members of the BWRC do demonstrate a commitment to training and development.

We do our best to keep this list up to date. Please contact us to notify us of errors or changes. If you are a practising rehabilitator but your details are not already on this page, let us know here. If you’d like to become a BWRC member you can apply here.
